Wine – Beer – Cider – Spirits

We are excited to offer to our guests Damiani, Boundary Breaks and Lamoreaux Landing wines. After traveling for hours to our marvelous Finger Lakes Wine Country enjoy our lovely grounds and “Come Wine Down” with us. With our BnB license our guests end their day by purchasing local craft Beer, Cider or our featured wines to enjoy on premise. Additionally, if you are a member of the Lamoreaux Landing Wine Club and call us to reserve a room we will provide you with a special rate.

There are so many fantastic wines, craft beer, cider and spirits in the Finger Lakes and so little time to enjoy them all.  We recommend around four wineries in a day which happily means you will have to return and stay with us every year.  During the winter, we have the hard duty of visiting as many of the wineries and sipping new releases from the Seneca and Cayuga Lake Wine Trails. This helps us to plan your tasting itinerary. On request, we will gladly snail mail you a map and information prior to your arrival.  On your arrival, you will find in our resource center, brochures and free tasting coupons and discounts.

Due to the constant changes brought on by COVID, many of the events and music venues are not publishing their complete calendars. Many of the wineries in 2020 adopted reservation only tastings and groups of not more than 4 – 6 and have continued this practice into 2022.  We are unable to make tasting reservations for you as the wineries require on-line registration or calling them directly with credit card information.

We do not have Lyft, Uber or any ride sharing services in Ovid or on much of the Wine Trails.  However, there are a few companies who will drive your car for you or provide a guided tour.  For your planning, please follow the links below or give us a call.  We also try to keep our Facebook page updated with current events.

  • Hard Cider

    The Finger Lakes are a perfect place for the blossoming Cider Industry.  There is an abundance of apple orchards such as Wickham’s which is a u-pick orchard in Hector.  You will find stand alone Cideries as well as a place for cider tasting in many of the Brewing Companies and Wineries. The farm to bottle philosophy is exemplified by these closest to us.
